BLOWOUT! Flames Burn Blackhawks

WTF?! The Calgary Flames will never cease to amaze me. After struggling to string 40 minutes of good hockey together throughout the whole month of November, they come out flying tonight and beat the Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks 7-2. The Flames played with a level of skill that seemed to be lacking in their […]

Coyotes extend Flames losing streak

The Calgary Flames hosted the Phoenix Coyotes tonight, and despite a solid first period, they couldn’t score often enough to win the game. Wojtek Wolski scored on a zero-angle shot at 7:13 of the 2nd period and Martin Hanzal added a powerplay goal 5 minutes later to give Phoenix a 2-0 lead. Rene Bourque scored […]

Flames come up short. Way short

The good news is that the Flames are safe. No records were set tonight. In case you were wondering, the most goals by one NHL team in one period is 9. That feat was accomplished by the Buffalo Sabres in the 2nd period on March 19, 1981 against the Toronto Maple Leafs. The good news […]

Six Goals Pushes Avalanche Past Flames

In a game that was all kinds of weird, the Calgary Flames gave up 3 different leads and two important points to the visiting Colorado Avalanche who defeated the Flames on a night that should have been a celebration. With Colorado goalie Craig Anderson out with a knee injury, the Flame should have rolled through […]

Flames hang on for OT win over Oilers

Brendan Morrison scored 2 goals, one on the powerplay and one short-handed, for the Flames tonight as they celebrated goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff’s 34th birthday with a win over the Edmonton Oilers.

Gameday: Flames host Sharks

The San Jose Sharks (3-2-1) swim into the Scotiabank Saddledome tonight for the first of four matchups with the Calgary Flames (4-3-0) this season. The Sharks are coming off a 6-1 win in Edmonton last night, and will be gunning for their 3rd consecutive win. The Flames will be looking to extend their winning streak […]

Flames bounce back with 5-3 win over Oilers

So this may sound like deja vu, but here it is. “The top line for the Calgary Flames silenced their critics with an offensive outburst tonight at the Saddledome. The Calgary Flames top trio of Jarome Iginla, Olli Jokinen Matt Stajan and Alex Tanguay combined for a total of 8 points as the Flames beat […]

Flames shutout by Panthers. Let the trade rumours begin.

So I was going out to watch the game with a friend tonight, and wanted to get a jump on my game summary blog post. I uploaded a pic, and started with this lead-in line (I thought it would be a good indication of what would come tonight): “The top line for the Calgary Flames […]

Flames win. The sky is not falling

The Calgary Flames celebrated their home opener and first game in their newly renamed home with a big win. The Flames downed the L.A. Kings 3-1 to christen the Scotiabank Saddledome tonight. Craig Conroy sniped a shot past Kings goalie Jonathan Bernier on a rush in the second period. His goal was the Flames second […]

Tonight’s action sets the stage for a huge Friday game between Calgary and Colorado in Denver on Friday. The Flames started the game slowly with a lackluster first […]

The Flames, complete with their full roster of newcomers including […]
